    Is it an article about how an AK homer still spends time on a Jazz messenger board?

    That's definitely not the most astounding fact about the universe.

    It's is a fact. But not an astounding fact. Why? What would you expect our bodies to be made out of, if we are essentially part of this universe itself? It must consist of the particles that is made up of the universe itself! That's just common sense.

    What would be astounding is if it was found that our bodies are made of substance which are NOT of this universe (i.e., substance that can not be found anywhere in the universe). Now, THAT would be astounding.

    Mars, the one with the ring around it, is the CLOSEST planet to the sun.

    Actually the most astounding fact about the Universe is how it began from nothingness.

    We don't know it. We just "believe" it. Just as we can only believe in the concept of eternity.

    I like to think of it more like something so hard and compact that it would take a firecracker to get the bowl movement started.

    Well like it or not, scientists have already figured out that at the beginning there was nothing (Big Bang theory).

    Nahmanides (a Jewish rabbi) said this 800 years ago when describing right after the origin of the universe.

    "At the briefest instant following creation all the matter of the universe was concentrated in a very small place, no larger than a grain of mustard. The matter at this time was so thin, so intangible, that it did not have real substance. It did have, however, a potential to gain substance and form and to become tangible matter. From the initial concentration of this intangible substance in its minute location, the substance expanded, expanding the universe as it did so. As the expansion progressed, a change in the substance occurred. This initially thin noncorporeal substance took on the tangible aspects of matter as we know it. From this initial act of creation, from this ethereally thin pseudosubstance, everything that has existed, or will ever exist, was, is, and will be formed."
